Thesis Requirements

M.A. Thesis

The LTWR Master's degree requires a scholarly thesis of 50-80 pages that represents a carefully developed argument. Students also have the option of writing a creative thesis (find out more details!).  LTWR Theses are orally defended in a public forum near the end of the semester. Please see the Graduate Handbook for more detailed information regarding the Thesis Proposal and how to form your Thesis Committee.

Thesis Submission

NB: When you are approaching the thesis defense, contact Johnna Norris, the Department's Academic Coordinator, for assistance in preparing official pages that must be inserted into the document before submission to the library. These must be done exactly to University specifications or the library will not accept the thesis.
